Arkansans get ready for the End Alzheimer’s Walk on Saturday



North Little Rock, Arkansas – On Saturday, November 5, 2022, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place.

A two-mile walk and ceremony are part of this annual event. The ceremony honors supporters while the walk serves to spread awareness.

“To honor those that are caregivers, who are diagnosed with the disease, those who are just supporters, and those who know someone or have someone in their live they have lost to Alzheimer’s,” said David Cook, senior public policy manager of the Arkansas chapter.

The ceremony will take place in Argenta Plaza in North Little Rock at 10 a.m., with arrival beginning at 9 a.m.

Cook stated that a large number of Arkansans are affected. One of them is Gigi Gabriel.

Alzheimer’s has been identified as the mother of Gabriel. Because I was also consumed with the illness and unable to move past the fact that she was dying, she claimed it was “very harmful in all respects.”

On Saturday, Gabriel will attend the celebration in her mother’s honor.

“The Arkansas Department of Human Services will soon announce that it has completed work on and will begin implementation of a comprehensive Alzheimer’s and Dementia State Plan to improve care and support for Arkansas residents,” officials with the Arkansas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association said.

Officials say it’s a four-step plan – focusing on four priority areas: “Access and Quality of Care; Family Caregiver Support; Public Awareness; and Training and Workforce.”
